illuminatizeitgeist:

“Since a cause cannot exist without an effect, and an effect cannot exist without a cause, the two are interdependent on each other. This can be likened to a “flame bound to a burning coal.” A flame cannot exist without the coal, and the burning coal cannot exist without the flame. Although, the coal is the cause of the flame, the flame is also the cause of the burning coal. Without the flame, it would not be a “burning” coal. Since Cause cannot exist without Effect, Effect is also the cause of Cause. In this sense, Effect is the cause, and Cause is the effect. Since beginning and end are inseparable, “their end is embedded in their beginning, and their beginning in their end.”

The alchemists, who in their own way knew more about the nature of the individuation process than we moderns do, expressed this paradox through the symbol of the Ouroboros, the snake that eats its own tail. The Ouroboros has been said to have a meaning of infinity or wholeness. In the age-old image of the Ouroboros lies the thought of devouring oneself and turning oneself into a circulatory process, for it was clear to the more astute alchemists that the prima materia of the art was man himself. The Ouroboros is a dramatic symbol for the integration and assimilation of the opposite, i.e. of the shadow. This ‘feed-back’ process is at the same time a symbol of immortality, since it is said of the Ouroboros that he slays himself and brings himself to life, fertilizes himself and gives birth to himself. He symbolizes the One, who proceeds from the clash of opposites, and he therefore constitutes the secret of the prima materia which … unquestionably stems from man’s unconscious.
